During an interview with Power 106 in LA, Busta Rhymes details how his new single featuring Eminem came about.

The single, which is scheduled to be on Busta Rhymes’ new album Extinction Level Event 2, is tearing up the net and according to Busta, is them going toe and toe wasn’t right until they redid several elements of the track.

“We just kept going back and forth, just competitive,” he says. “It started to really feel like we battling each other. It started to feel like a three minute and eight second song. After we kept sending it back and forth, it ended up being six minutes. We was like, ‘Yo, listen, it’s one thing to say ‘F the rules, but it’s another thing to say we’.’ But it’s a beautiful piece of art…You’re probably never gonna experience a moment like this AGAIN. It’s our first time going in this crazy on a record unlike we’ve ever done on our own records before and probably unlike what we’ll do on any other record again. It’s special.” 

Whatever they did – it certainly is special.
